  1. Ah, the wonderful world of television. Did you know Philo Farnsworth never owned one?
    Those showers are headed our way Kent. We should have them over night.
    BTW. I think I failed to comment on those wonderful typewriters yesterday as I read OTP on my phone when I was in Lansing.
    One of, if not, my best typewriter is my Underwood Rhythm Touch. It’ll give any manual or electric a run for its money, but mine is not as nice looking as the one on OTP.

  2. What a fantastic and diverse group of posters! I am encouraged to muster-up the energy to do my own submission soon!



  3. John Baird: the current Mars exploration is fascinating. Ingenuity and Perseverance – inspirational to say the least. My father worked more than 40 years as an electronician, repairing TVs, radios, turning tables and sound amps. I grew up hanging around his shop and later his store.

    Xicano: thanks for the book reference. I will get one. From the age of 12, my parents moved us to a small farm. I worked with them and my brothers with the crops, the bees and the sheep flock and the woodlot where I helped my father build a “cabane à sucre”, a sugar shack to make maple syrup from the trees. Learned to drive tractors and combine harvesters and ditched the truck by inadvertance. After graduate studies, I made a career in international affairs related to agriculture and agrifood.
